    Re: Horrible mating numbers

    Update: As of today, I have 16 of the 25 mated and laying and 1 queen is still questionable but I'm not too hopeful about it. I am pretty sure that the majority of my failures in getting them mated...
  2. Re: Still have lots of drone brood so today I grafted.

    I used to have the same problem. I still may suck but I changed something this last time and got 29 of 43 acceptance. I watched Kamon's (Tennessee's Bees) youtube video on grafting where he used the...

    Re: Getting comb drawn 'on demand'.

    This was kind of my thought also. I mostly use Lauri Miller's Fly-back method of splitting hives which, with food and sub, will put a hive into high gear drawing comb. But if you let the food or...

    Re: Horrible mating numbers

    I had this same situation with a few mating nucs this year as well. What looked at the beginning to be drone layers was apparently just a slow to get going queen. After some research I read a few...

    Re: Horrible mating numbers

    So an update on my latest grafting efforts on 7/23. I have 29 out of 43 capped cells. I'm pleased with how the cells "look" and I hope to get a good return on the mated queens.
    I did do something...

  9. Re: best way to apply Bt-k to frames (that could have moth-maggot potential)?

    Where does one get BT-A in liquid form? I can only find BT-K, or I can't definitively determine that it is BT-A.

    Re: Multiple Queens

    Like JW said. You can direct release with no problem. I direct release virgins all the time with no problem. I actually prefer to direct release because I can inspect the queen for any deformities...

    alf,
    Here is the cut sheet for the 4-frame nucs. I planned it for using 4 sheets that will make 16 4-frame hive bodies, 16 4-frame bottom boards and 8 telescoping covers. This cut sheet is for...

    Re: nuc plans from Advantech

    I bought one of these just for cutting large sheets with a circular saw. Kind of pricey but man does it make things easy if you make your cut sheet so you can rip things into manageable pieces to put...

    So the Oxytet-25 dosage recommendations are 14g per small colony or 28g per large colony if mixed with 3500g of icing/sugar. The active ingredient in Oxytet-25 is 25g of oxytetracycline per 454g of...

    Is there a specific form of the Oxytet (Oxytetracycline) that has to be used or will the Duramycin from TS work?

    Re: Split mess up, flyback

    Hey GWW,
    My understanding is in order to do a fly-back you HAVE to find the queen because she has to stay in the original location with only a frame or two of open brood and the adhering bees.
